|Craisin Raisin Apple Crisp|
However, when I purchased the bag last week, salad was not on my mind. It was Apple Crisp! This is a wonderful dessert - Yum. It tastes very similar to an apple pie, but there is no crust to roll out. The baked apples are covered with a delicious topping of old fashioned Oats, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Butter/Margarine.
In Produce Aisles of grocery stores I've noticed a "mix" for the topping sold in boxes. Butter/Margarine is added to the dry ingredients. A 1 lb. canister of Oats, a small bag of Flour, along with the spices always come in handy in a kitchen, so I always view this "premeasured topping mix" as a waste of $$.
Quaker is my brand of old fashioned Oats. I must admit that once the fall season begins I use oats in many foods, so Costco is my "go to" place for oats. That large box really is not that big. :)
Craisin Raisin Apple Crisp is a dessert that my fam always enjoys. In the spring I use a combination of Empire and of Granny Smith apples. The photo above shows our dessert one evening before a small scoop of vanilla ice cream was added on top.
